India cricketer brothers Irfan and Yusuf Pathan will soon get a new address as the city and district administrations have given permission for a new bungalow at Tandalja area in Vadodara.

The Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) and district administration have given the green signals for construction of the sprawling bungalow, which will come up on 14,000 square-feet area.
